I am a board-certified pediatrician with professional interests in obesity prevention and management, asthma, allergies, adolescent physical and mental health, common illnesses in children, well-child exams, adolescent health and preventive care. 

I'm passionate about: preventive care. As a pediatrician, I have a strong role in educating children and families to chose healthy lifestyle options. 

If I wasn't a provider, I would be a: chef. 

My favorite destination is: the Smokey Mountains. There are breathtaking views and beautiful hiking trails. 

I knew I wanted to become a physician: at an early age. A little guidance from my grandmother helped me make my career choice. 

Something I've learned from my patients is: to listen carefully to every parent. Since they know their child best, I involve the family in the decision-making regarding the health of their child. 

One of the challenges of my career that I enjoy is: that every child is different, and every treatment plan has to be unique to fit the needs of each child. 

My personal health goal is: to exercise five to six days a week. 

My best health advice is to: take small steps toward achieving your health goals. 

I am most proud of: my twin girls. 

I'm proud to have achieved: completing my first handmade quilt.
